The CCM JetSpeed FT1 Shin Guardis one of the lightest and lowest-profile shin guards available today. CCM accomplished this, along with elite protection, by using RocketFrame Composite in the calf wrap for the first time ever. This material which is also used in the FT1 skate, is lighter and more protective than any foam or plastic currently used in calf guards.
The rest of the protection comes from the extensive use ZoteFoam and DryFoam. ZoteFoam, found in the thigh guard, around the knee and a small portion of the liner; reduces weight and provides elite-level impact absorption. DryFoam is a perforated, moisture-repelling material that is used throughout the liner to help prevent the shin guard from absorbing moisture while pushing it to the outside.
Last but not least is the liner and strapping system. CCM wanted to give players of all calf sizes one shin guard to fit all. Their new length-adjustable calf strap can easily and securely adjust to perfectly accommodate all shapes and sizes of calves. The upper knee strap boasts a padded, neoprene-like construction for premium comfort that doesn't pinch. The new removable laminated liner is not only softer than the previous QLT's liner. Much like DryFoam, it also helps to repel it away from the body.
